So notice one end is female and one is male. This goes into one side. I guess I happen to have a device that has this in my build so I didn't notice it.

Okay I looked into it and yours was just installed backwards lol

I also read that is only needed for addtional leds.

Fantastic thank you! So this is for extra optional lighting.

*********

So now I'm suffering through work today knowing I'm going to have two big boxes of water cooling stuff waiting for me when I get home which means I get to finish the build tonight. I can't wait!

Not having the dust filter in the side slats was my biggest con for the case, but decided it was a reasonable and fixable compromise. However, it looks like they added this silently in the Acrylic version thumb.gif.



EDIT: I double checked and it looks like the only opening is at the very bottom, but then again I'm not sure if that space is even necessarily open enough to effect it that much. The side slats/vents were my biggest con, but as you can see that was addressed.

Nice, good to see the side vents were addressed with the Pro M Acrylic. No, I don't have a Pro M. It was on my short list back when I was shopping cases though. The filters were a deal breaker for me at the time. Funny though, cause the case I ended up with was a filterless one haha thumb.gif

Ah, I see you went with a CaseLabs case, so I don't think you made a bad decision smile.gif. Plus you can always address the filter situation biggrin.gif. I really enjoy Phanteks' cases so far after two builds in two different ones.

Pics incoming soonish for the second build biggrin.gif.

I plan to build soon and could use some advice on the fan setup.

I'll be using a Enthoo Primo case with a Asus x99-Deluxe II MB, and a Phanteks PH-TC14PE for my CPU cooler. As for fan placement, I'm planning to do 3x top intake, 2x bottom intake, 2x front intake, and 1x top rear exhaust. The front and bottom both have filters. Thoughts?

Secondly, I'm uncertain as to the best way to control the fans. The case comes with a PWM hub, that can supposedly handle up to 11 fans. The MB also comes with a fan extension card with 3 headers. Then of course the headers on the MB itself. I've heard mixed reports on the Phanteks PWM hub. Can anyone give first-hand advice on it? Is it safe to use that many fans on the PWM hub without risk of blowing out your header? I'll be using 8 case fans (3 pin), and 2 (4 pin) on the CPU cooler. How would you set it up?

Thanks.

I know the one I bought as an extra uses SATA power, so that way it draws only the PWM signal from the mobo, but uses SATA for the actual power smile.gif. I imagine the Primo is like this, but I believe doyll would have to confirm. Same goes for the fan setup; doyll and ciarlatano are your guys thumb.gif.

The first thought........."that build is going to look entirely lost in that giant case specifically made for liquid cooling".
The second thought....."not every fan space needs to be filled, some do more harm than good, and there is way too much intake to exhaust....like, WAY too much intake to get any kind of airflow, just going to be a bunch of airblow".

Frankly, your fan plan is bad. Really bad. Cooling works by having a flow of cooler air moving through the case freely. The more this happens, the lower the in case temps will be. Your setup doesn't flow at all, and will be far more noisy than it needs to be. You would likely get far better performance losing the top fans entirely.

Well....again, you have too many fans for the build...so......
But, would handle all of the case fans without a problem. Connect to a chassis header and be sure to enable PWM on the header in BIOS. Run the CPU fans off the CPU header.

Slowly coming together!

post #13449 of 19388
I saw you were looking for drain ideas, Here is how my drain is setup, works super slick.



Bottom rad is an alphacool UT60

Uses a 90 fitting (with rotary on 1 end that goes into the rad) then into a short male to male extender into a bitspower mini ball valve. I have to remove the valve handle to tuck it in there, but that's easy to put on when I need to.

It actually swivels out and clears everything, i can attach a hose to the valve open up and drain.

This might not clear with regular fans, but does because I'm using 38mm thick fans on bottom + some gaskets and stuff...

I appreciate the advice.

The number of fans I'll use is still flexible. I had just decided on using 8 under my previous assumption that a lot of positive pressure might be beneficial given the filters and fairly open back of the Primo. What would you recommend then for optimal fan setup? Just removing the top fans, or something else?
